As reported by multiple media sources, the United States of America, joined Circle of Trust. For those that are unaware, Circle of Trust is an alliance that was formed out of the cast offs from Terra and EDEN. It has since grown, into one of the largest alliances in the game. The alliance is currently comprised of:
Republic of Moldova
Republic of Macedonia
And now the United States has been added as a Trial Member.
Obviously, this move brings both good and bad news. Let’s start with the bad:
-Circle of Trust (CoT) is aligned with some of our oldest enemies.
Yup. No denying that one. But lets be frank for a bit here. No President is going to propose MPPs with Hungary, nor Serbia. It just isn’t in the cards for the United States. So while many of the nations in CoT have a friendship with TWO, the USA does not have to. CoT is an independent alliance, and has its own set of battles and priorities to worry about.
-Circle of Trust has some of our old enemies in it.
Yup, sure does. But when Terra was formed, it had Argentina and Brazil in it. We fought epic battles against those nations while they were part of PEACE. Being an enemy, does not exclude nations from ever working together, and forging new friendships.
You don’t have all of the same friends that you did in Elementary School, do you?
This move allows the United States to forge new friendships and new bonds that can be just as strong as the bonds we’ve given up.
Circle of Trust is a TWO puppet.
Disagree. Strongly. CoT is as much a puppet of TWO, as Terra was of EDEN. Yes, the alliances work together, but CoT is it’s own entity. A thriving, vibrant alliance filled with nations all over the world. They aren’t beholden to a region, nor to an alliance.
Let’s talk about some of the good.
First and foremost, joining an alliance will allow the United States to beat this PTO. Every time we elect a new President, our foreign affairs changes slightly, and we end up offending another group of people in the USA. By joining this alliance, the United States is formally solidifying it’s foreign affairs position. This will allow us not only to focus our attention completely towards the PTO, but also towards allowing voters from allied nations to enter, and help us take the fight to the Serbians.
Joining this alliance has huge ramifications towards the PTO, and will ultimately allow us to beat it.
Bulgaria was a longtime member of EDEN, and we had a great relationship when they were. Unfortunately, EDEN made the terrible choice of choosing Turkey over Bulgaria, and Bulgaria left. I can’t say that I blame them.
Chile was a member of Terra for a long time, and we had another great relationship with them. Unfortunately, they were forced out of the alliance by Argentina and friends.
Even Japan used to be a member of Terra, although it was brief.
We have relationships with some of these nations. Even though we’ve been at odds on the battlefield, doesn’t mean that those friendships are dead.
With the addition of the United States to CoT, the alliance becomes one of the strongest in the world. This alliance will be able to stand on it’s own, able to deliver massive damage all across the world.
Add in the fact that CoT has major representation in most of the time zones, and the alliance is able to distribute that massive amount of damage equally, across many of the mini battles.
One of the things that CoT prides itself on, is the equality between members. Small nations like South Korea and Japan have the same voting power as the large ones like Chile and Bulgaria. This is not an alliance in the style of TWO, where the strong nations use the little ones.
CoT is based on equality and friendship, two notions that the United States can get behind. This is the same concept that Terra used, and the United States had a great amount of success with that alliance.
I can sit here, and tell you how great this alliance is, or how good it is going to be for this nation. But until we’ve been involved, and a great many citizens have experienced the friendship, camaraderie and battles, they are just empty words. I encourage you to hang out in #CircleOfTrust and meet some of your new best friends.
Old friendships die hard, I understand that. But that doesn’t mean that we should desperately hold on to them, in hopes that the glory days will come back.
Give our new friends a chance, just as they are giving us a chance.
